I remain always fascinated with Matisse, his colors and his textiles.
He used so many brilliant colors together and a lot of red!
Always makes me happy!

The pattern on the wall is one of Matisse's textiles.
My impression of part of one of his paintings hangs over the fireplace.
The window view is from another, as well as the plants on the table 
and in the window.  The sofa is my idea of what maybe Mr Matisse
would like to have in his parlor.....hum...?

While I was researching his use of combining several
different patterns in his paintings, the word puzzles came to mind.
I think that I was wondering if his use of all those patterns in one
composition ever puzzles people??? Therefor the inspiration
for "Puzzled with Matisse"  born. Silly, I know, but true!
I never get tired of paintings with him


John Berger, however, captured the essence of Matisses powers: 'He clashed his colours together like cymbals, and the effect was like a lullaby.
